Hi All, I'm hoping you can help me ID a plant that is growing amok near my mom's pond. NE Ohio, zone 6A, blooming now (June 30th). I've tried to attach a photo, I'll update if it isn't viewable. Thanks! Denise

Might be birds foot trefoil lotus corniculatus. Could you do a closer picture of the leaves?

Thank you for the reply, I'll ask my mom if she can get a better pic tomorrow. I think you might have made an id, though. Thanks again! Dee

I would definitely say bird's foot trefoil but add that over here at least there are two species, common and greater, and greater has hollow stems and more likely to be found near water.

Yes, that is Birdsfoot Trefoil, I know it well I grow about 60 acres of it.

Thank you all, my mom did confirm after I sent her a few links to Birdsfoot Trefoil images & web info pages, that is the same plant. Much appreciated, my husband and I were stumped by it.
Thanks again, Denise
 
And now I present magical permaculture hypno cards. The idea is to give them to people that think all your permaculture babble is crazy talk. And be amazed as they apologize for the past derision, and beg you for your permaculture wisdom. If only there were some sort of consumer based event coming where you could have an excuse to slip them a deck ... richsoil.com/cards
